Winter tends to be the time of year we hunker down, add another layer of blankets, another log to the fire, and plan to mostly just ride it out until it warms up.
But cooler temps are no excuse to put your romance on the back burner.
Winter date night ideas in Oklahoma City are fun, creative, (often) indoors, and can usually be done in the other seasons, too.
